Baby Bomber Recap 5/21/16: RailRiders come out on top after Indianapolis Indians make four errors

Recapping the Yankees' minor league affiliates' results from May 21th.

Triple-A Scranton/RailRiders: W 7-3 vs. Indianapolis Indians

The RailRiders won this game thanks to incredibly poor defense by the Indians, who made four errors before the night ended. Six of the seven runs that the RailRiders scored were unearned. The lone earned run was a home run off the bat of Jake Cave, who led the night with two hits, including a double. Gary Sanchez also doubled and drove in three runs. Everyone in the lineup picked up a hit other than Chris Parmelee and Pete Kozma.

After making his MLB debut against the Diamondbacks earlier in the week, Chad Green was sent back to Scranton. In his first start back, he struck out seven, walked one, and gave up two earned runs off five hits.  Anthony Swarzak earned his fourth save of the season after giving up two hits, including a solo shot, through three innings of work.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: Postponed due to rain

High-A Tampa Yankees: L 8-9 vs. Fort Myers Miracle

Although both teams had control of the lead at various points in the game, it looked like the Tampa Yankees would walk away with the win after heading into the bottom of the ninth inning with a 7-5 lead. Then Jordan Foley and Travis Hissong happened. After giving up one run in the eighth inning, Foley started the ninth by walking the leadoff hitter, giving up a single, throwing a wild pitch then walking another batter to load the bases. Hissong came in to try and limit the damage and instead he gave up three singles in a row to give the Miracle a walk-off win.

Several of the T-Yanks had big nights at the plate with Abiatal Avelino and Bo Thompson recording three hits apiece, including a triple for the former. Thompson was also charged with an error on a missed catch. Jorge Mateo hit a triple, while Billy Fleming doubled twice and Francisco Diaz also picked up two hits.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 4-8 vs. Columbia Fireflies

The RiverDogs were doomed from the start due to a poor outing by Yefrey Ramirez. Through three and one-third innings, he was charged with six earned runs, walked three batters and allowed nine hits. Hobie Harris gave up another two runs before David Sosebee pitched two scoreless innings to end the game.

The offense put together ten hits but couldn't find a way to overcome the early deficit. Thairo Estrada, Kyle Holder and Kendall Coleman all ended the night with two hits apiece. Jhalan Jackson and Connor Spencer both doubled. Hoy Jun Park drew the only walk of the night and stole his tenth base of the season. The only error of the game was charged to Angel Aguilar when he made a throwing error after fielding a bunt.
